Todays trunk works for me. In SVN we have howto/howto-howto.xml
which uses <faqs> ... this doc was DTD v1.3 but now
i upgraded it to to be DTD v2.0 ... and both versions
work in my local test.

If you still see problems, then please add a test document
to a Jira Issue.

That would be a great relief. It has been on my todo
list for the imminent 0.7 release. The empty <meta-data/>
element would mean we need to change our compliance.html page.
